Introduction to Super Records

Introduction to Super Records

A Super Record gives you a detailed view of a particular data record that's enriched with related data and history.

Accessing a Super Record

In most tables, the primary key column (usually the first column and/or unique identifier) will be autolinked to the Super Record. You can also click on a primary key field in a card list.

Exploring a Super Record

Basic Info + History

This section will display all of the data fields/attributes and corresponding values for this record. If write access to your data source is enabled, you will also be able to access a full history of all changes made to this record (what changed, when, and which user changed it).

Tool Kit

"Raw mode" allows you to see the "raw" data ingested by Internal (original column headers and untransformed data).

Related Records

When Internal connects to a data source, it attempts to infer any relationships between data fields (that can be detected via foreign keys). Those relationships that are automatically detected will be displayed as a related record in this section (below, we'll cover how you can embed related records directly into the Super Record).

Ex: If you have a table called "Customers" and a table called "Orders", and both tables share a column called "Customer ID" that is related through a foreign key, Internal will automatically create a relationship and display related records.
